MISSION:

Ratscape was born in 2012 at the (now defunct) Hour Haus rehearsal studios at the intersection of North Ave and Howard streets. Over the years, the festival has grown to include over 90 bands, with 900+ people attending over 3 days.  The arts community continues to recognize the value of providing a platform for lesser-known artists when a huge cross-over audience assembles in the neighborhood for Artscape. The founders of Ratscape also feel a deep commitment to holding a DIY, artist-lead event in the Station North neighborhood, where rent is increasing and space for musicians is decreasing. 

After the Hour Haus closed, Ratscape moved to the Ynot Lot and became a free, public event, maximizing inclusivity and exposure to some of the best acts Charm City has to offer.  2019 marks the festival's second year of free music at YNOT, with even more programming at the Crown afterward. Union Brewery will be bringing the beer!

 

YOUR SUPPORT IS CRUCIAL:

This festival is the work of a generous and deeply dedicated arts community. Musicians, illustrators and coordinators donate their time and talents, and then proceeds are split. In past years we relied on ticket sales, but as we move towards open source programming so more people can rock out, there's less $ for our hardworking musicians performing in the July heat! 

Your donation ensures that production costs are covered, artists are compensated for their craft, and attendees of Artscape weekend get a taste of Charm City's underground music scene.
